Spirit of the Tango - 


Tango is amongst the most passionate of musical genres in which the guitar has played a major role from its earliest years. Like so many other genres, the guitar was originally more commonly used as a way of accompanying  a melody carried by vocalists and other lead instruments. In more recent times the classical guitar has proved a popular medium to perform modern tango compositions. This publication contains carefully arranged guitar scores and TABs for some of the earliest and most loved tangos of all time. This title however does not contain scores of flamenco tangos which themselves are unrelated to the Argentinian tangos and its various branches. All the scores within 'Spirit of the Tango' have been arranged from the earliest available recordings so as to authentically capture the spirit of the tango. 

This book is available on paperback, Kindle and as a pdf download through the links provided and is a suitable study for both reading and non reading guitarists (via the included tablature) from intermediate proficiency to professional performers.
